11:46 am
between pork loin and pork tenderloin? well howard is re to tell us the difference... and bring us a licious recipe. chchk it out! "you know, whether it's beef, pork or veal.recognizing different cuts of meat can be a tad confusing. recently, merly, our editor, got a question from a viewer that many of you may have. hi howard, cathy emailed us and wanted to know the difference between a pork l ln and a pork tenderloin. thanks merly. good question, i know a lot of people get those two confused so let me show you.
11:47 am
see, the pork tenderloin is much smaller than the pork loin. in the market, you'll find this whole, cut into smaller roasts (about 2-3 pounds each), or into boneless chops. as for the tenderloin, they may be small, (weighing in at only about a pound each) but they are super tender and very lean. and talk aboutut versatile. we caca throw them on the grill, saut t em in a skilleleor roast them and they're done in no time. today, we marinated a couple in some olive oil, lime juice, garlic, and a few spices before roasting them off. and when we serve these sliced and topped with an easy throw-together homemade black bean salsa, are you ever in for a treat. as a matter of fact, the recipe for our, "pork tenderloin with black bean salsa," as well as a bunch of other pork loin and pork tenderloin recipesare online now. and since pork tenderloin is so lean, our waist lines will thank us. i'm howard in the mr. fo test kitchen, where today we found a "tasty tender way" for you to say .
